Hello and Happy Halloween from Dark Hall Mansion to all those interested in purchasing our upcoming Limited Edition release:”Universal Classic Monsters” 10-Print Folio by Tom Whalen (Standard and Variant Edition) !!

PLEASE READ ALL BELOW AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, EMAIL US DIRECTLY AT: so we can address your questions in advance of the release!

On Wednesday, October 30th, beginning at exactly 9:00 AM PST we will notify the winners of a lottery for right to purchase Dark Hall Mansion’s release of Tom Whalen’s “Universal Classic Monsters” Folios. You have from NOW until next Tuesday afternoon at 5 PM PST to e-mail us at: with the words “WHALEN STANDARD” OR “WHALEN VARIANT” in the subject line for a chance to win your right to purchase either ONE “Universal Classic Monsters” 10-Print Standard Edition Folio or ONE “Universal Classic Monsters” 10-Print Variant
Edition Folio. This is ALL you need to do to enter the lottery!

We will take all of the e-mails that we have received by 5 PM PST Tuesday afternoon (Note: day BEFORE the release), hold a lotto, and at 9 AM PST on October 30th we will e-mail the winners of the Standard and Variant Editions with separate e-mails sent for each edition. For those attempting to purchase both editions, and lucky enough to win both lottos, you will receive two separate e-mails confirming that you have won.


Payments not received within that three hour window will result in cancellation of that order, with NO exceptions, so it is vital you make the payment during that time slot.

At 12 PM PST, we will stop taking payments from the winners, and between 12 PM and 1 PM PST we will determine how many sets were not paid for, and we will then hold a second chance lottery among those who did not win in the first round. Those “Second Chance” winners will be notified and have ONE hour in which to make their PayPal payment. If ALL of the sets were paid for during the initial three hours, then of course, there will be no Second Chance lottery!

Here are the details about the “Universal Classic Monsters” Folios: Each Folio contains TEN 18″ x 24″ individually numbered prints (8 individual prints + one very special 2-print diptych), each individually screen printed, with all pieces encased in a Tom Whalen designed box with its respective COA. The STANDARD EDITION FOLIO contains the multiple color prints while the VARIANT EDITION FOLIO contains Tom’s striking ‘silver screen’ take on the classic Universal Monsters and will be beautifully printed with select metallic inks.

PLEASE KNOW THAT METALLIC INK PRINTS ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO PHOTOGRAPH AND YOU WILL NEED USE A BIT OF IMAGINATION-OR BE FAMILIAR WITH TOM’S PAST WORK-TO HAVE AN IDEA OF JUST HOW EXTRAORDINARY HIS METALLIC INFUSED PIECES CAN BE IN PERSON! Again, anyone familiar with Tom’s stunning touch with design, particularly his incorporation of metallics within his artwork, will most certainly attest to this. So we hope that you accept that the prints in his Variant Edition Folio will look FAR better in person than they can in any monitor restricted image. In other words, knowing Tom’s work, we think
you are going to absolutely love these!!

There will be 230 Folios in the Standard Edition run and 70 Folios in the Variant Edition run. Know that one VERY special print from each and every Standard and Variant edition Folio will be personally signed by artist Tom Whalen. Specifically of note to collectors: It will be the one print that is Tom Whalen’s homage to one of THE earliest and MOST rare of the original 1931 Frankenstein posters created: THE original ADVANCE-style Frankenstein one sheet poster! A poster that long ago led those very first terrified movie patrons into 1931 movie houses everywhere to see the first glimpses of Karloff’s Monster.

Please find sample images from the Folios attached but DO check Dark Hall Mansion’s Facebook page here regularly over the next few days: ; for special reveal presentations leading into next week’s general release.
